GAN900lolcat, we're going around in circles here.00:03
*** Diod has joined #maemo00:03
GAN900All digital sensors are capable of "seeing" IR.00:03
lolcatGAN900: Round round round like a record00:03
GAN900Most of them, through software or glass IR filters, are prevented from doing so.00:03
lolcatGAN900: Take your tv remote up against the camera on the N90000:03
lolcatYou will see it00:03
GAN900lolcat, OK, so the camera in question is the N900 camera.00:04
lolcatPut it against a canon camera00:04
ZogGi hope meego device is not last and it would have multitouch resistence scren =)00:04
GAN900lolcat, my 7D and S95 both have IR filters.00:04
mulleinwhat is a good external gps that i can connect to my n900?00:05
lolcatGAN900: I have newer found a camera that can't see iR00:05
lolcatmullein: It has an internal gps00:05
GAN900ZogG, I think resistive has been pretty well killed by Apple.00:05
mulleini know00:05
mulleinand when i was in the woods it didn't fix its location after hours00:05
*** dominikb has joined #maemo00:05
mulleini want something better for my hikes :)00:05
lolcatHow did apple kill resistive screens+00:05
GAN900By making everybody think they want capacitive screens00:06
lcukwhich apple devices had resistive screens ?00:06
lolcatThe N900 has resistive screen?00:06
GAN900So all of the manufacturers are tripping all over themselves to release only capacitive devices.00:07
GAN900lcuk, Newton.00:07
lcukno, the N900 has a high precision screen.00:07
GAN900lolcat, yes, as did all other Maemo devices for it.00:07
lcukGAN900, lol00:07
lolcatWish I had a high precision thumb00:07
GAN900lcuk, which uses resistive touch technology.00:07
lcuklolcat, cut your nails right00:07
GAN900lcuk, you would LOVE the Newton.00:07
lcukGAN900, I know00:07
lcukGAN900, did you see, I changed my background picture
lcukis a photograph I took on holiday in England :)00:08
lolcatlcuk: Huh?00:08
*** FIQ|n900 has quit IRC00:08
ZogGGAN900 until we didn't have multitouch resistence00:09
lcukits not the technology, its what you do with it.00:09
infobotlcuk meant: it's not the technology, its what you do with it.00:09
GAN900ZogG, Stantum has been available for a few years now, yet nobody has shipped a single product.00:09
lolcatCapacitive screens only can be touched with fingers?00:09
lcuk*warm fingers00:09
GAN900Or pork sausages.00:09
GAN900Have to be grade aa, though.00:10
lolcatThat is boring00:10
GAN900lcuk, that is a picture in need of cropping.00:10
ZogGlcuk nope, before we could have only fake software multitouch00:10
*** zutesmog has joined #maemo00:11
ZogGGAN900 a lot of money?00:11
ZogGbut resistance is good cause it can know the strength and accuracy and how thin/wide line should be00:12
GAN900ZogG, no real market interest.00:12

alteregomaheshk: you usually measure performance with benchmarks00:16
*** Foxygnu has quit IRC00:16
maheshkalterego, no tool/command to check check GPU utilization?00:16
alteregoI don't believe so, no.00:17
*** SpeedEvil has quit IRC00:18
alteregoYou mean like % utilisation?00:18
alteregoI'm not sure it even makes that much sense.00:18
alteregoBasically when it comes to gpu stuff, you try and maintain a certain framerate.00:19
alteregoSo if you're pushing it too hard you fps will drop, otherwise you should get a constant interval.00:20
*** tycho has joined #maemo00:21
*** prank has joined #maemo00:22
alteregoI suppose in theory, you could set up and render an empty scene and hammer it, do as many buffer swaps you can and measure the performance, then as you add polygons or enable multisampling, you can use the frame drops to calculate a pseudo percentage.00:23
alteregoBut I'm still not sure that makes much sense :)00:23
maheshktrue, actually I disabled some accelerated compositing features in my video player and wanted to see if its still using GPU00:25
maheshkeven if not exact % but just to make sure00:25
*** rm_work has quit IRC00:25
maheshkalterego, I guess it is still using GPU because my CPU doesnt go beyond 30% :)00:28
alteregomaheshk: it will use the gpu if you're telling it to. How are you rendering your video?00:28
maheshkqgraphicscene + qvideoitem00:29
maheshkthats all I care about.. using qtmobility apis basically00:29
alteregoWith a QGLWidget as the viewport?00:29
maheshkso it can either go with raptor or openGL in these case00:29
maheshknot sure about QGLWidget though.. any easy way? I think i can GDB on device right? as long as i have debug binaries00:30
*** SpeedEvil has joined #maemo00:31
alteregoWell, you create a QGraphicsView, you setScene(scene) then you setViewport(new QGLWidget)00:31
*** aloisiojr has quit IRC00:32
alteregoThat's the short version,you obviously need to do it properly ;)00:32
alteregoThere's a nice example of it in the docs about the Qt Graphics Framework.00:33

*** GNUtoo|laptop has quit IRC01:39
OkropNickSorry, I read your post, but I don't know how to help you. I'm going to sleep. Good Luck!01:40
nox-maybe try mplayer?01:41

RaveniquEI did :)01:52
RaveniquEas I told in topic, tried mplayer with KMPlayer, but it throws me up to KMlayer menu after a few secs01:52
*** Natunen has quit IRC01:52
*** valdyn has quit IRC01:53
*** crs has joined #maemo01:53
psycho_oreosthere's also smplayer in the repos01:55
RaveniquEI will try it, but main problem is default media player can't play even default videos!01:57
RaveniquE(I mean the videos that comes with N900)01:57
*** dominikb_ has quit IRC01:57
*** jonwil has joined #maemo01:57
psycho_oreosthat could be an issue with the extra-decoders that you have installed, something didn't work out right. The default media player doesn't depend on mplayer01:58
RaveniquEI think so01:58
RaveniquEbut, is there a code to check my codecs are fine?01:59
*** achipa has quit IRC01:59
*** valdyn has joined #maemo02:00
psycho_oreosdpkg -l extra-decoders ?02:00
psycho_oreosnah its called decoders-support02:01
RaveniquEI uninstalled it02:01
RaveniquEshould I reinstall it?02:01
RaveniquEseems like it corrupted my main codecs on N90002:02
psycho_oreosmm hard to say, might be a good idea02:02
RaveniquEwill try asap, a break for WC lol02:02
psycho_oreosthe decoders-support package doesn't really add any extra decoders, according to the list of files provided by that package, it just adds an xml file detailing the extra extensions and their specific descriptors02:06

RaveniquEwill try it anyway..02:10
RaveniquEit needs 3,7 Mb though02:11
*** chx has joined #maemo02:12
psycho_oreosactually my bad, it depends on a whole bunch of other gstreamer plugins02:13
RaveniquEok, done installing, let's check02:13
*** vblazquez has quit IRC02:13
*** tycho has quit IRC02:14
RaveniquEnothing changed02:14
RaveniquEwhere is the codecs in N900?02:14
alteregoI didn't think mplayer used gst ...02:15
* alterego wanders off again02:15
*** vblazquez has joined #maemo02:16
*** blackthorne has joined #maemo02:16
*** blackthorne has joined #maemo02:16
psycho_oreososso media player uses gst, mplayer has its own library02:16
psycho_oreosmight be /usr/lib/gstreamer0.10/02:17
RaveniquEyeah, there're tons of files like libgstnokiamp3dec.so02:19
*** KMFDM has quit IRC02:20
psycho_oreos166 files :)02:20
RaveniquEhow to check the number with filebox?02:20
psycho_oreosI don't use filebox, I use ssh :) ls -l| wc -l02:21
*** maheshk has quit IRC02:21
psycho_oreosactually I made some mistakes though with the counting of files, its 164 because I did ls -al which includes the directories . and .. which are irrelevant02:21
RaveniquEwhat is the size of
RaveniquEmine is 71.13kb02:23
*** ohwhyme has joined #maemo02:23
*** florian has quit IRC02:24
RaveniquEhm.. seems size is ok too02:24
psycho_oreoscomparing by size doesn't really help, especially it might even be a few bytes off and yet the number is still rounded off02:26
psycho_oreosI can't remember what was needed to be done when installing decoders-support, I do recall trackerd was needed to be restarted a few times.02:27
*** FireFly has quit IRC02:28
sleepeeso i'm having some trouble updating my n900 to pr 1.3.  i can't do ota update and nokia software updater/ovi suite doesn't install on any OS i have.  am i out of luck?02:28
RaveniquEcan you check the version of mafw-gst-renderer version on your device?02:29
RaveniquEno, you should try flasher02:29
RaveniquEwhat is your operating system?02:29
RaveniquEsleepee :
sleepeei have fedora/win2K3 on my desktop and mint/virus-ridden win7 on my laptop.02:30
RaveniquEpsycho_oreos : I need mafw-gst-renderer version :)02:30
RaveniquEin fapman02:30
*** zap has quit IRC02:30
*** Mousey has quit IRC02:30
psycho_oreosRaveniquE, 0.3.2010.24-1+0m502:31
sleepeethanks RaveniquE.  i'll read that and see what i can do..02:31
RaveniquEsleepee : check , it is the healtiest way to flash02:31
RaveniquEnevermind :)02:31
psycho_oreosand I used dpkg -l for that :)02:31
RaveniquEgood luck :)02:31
RaveniquEfine, I have same version02:31
RaveniquEshould I delete it and somehow install it again?02:32
psycho_oreossleepee, I think using fapman will do something equivalent of osso HAM's OTA02:32
psycho_oreosRaveniquE, hmm hard to say, what I would try doing instead of restarting all over again is to try rebooting the device02:32
sleepeeyou lost me. lol.  what is osso HAM's OTA?02:33
psycho_oreossleepee, osso is the packages that nokia usually describes their built-in software, HAM is hildon application manager, OTA is over the air :p02:33
psycho_oreosI can't quite remember what was the acronym for osso02:34
RaveniquEI couldn't count how many times that I rebooted my device =)02:34
sleepeeohhh lol!!  i got it now... that was a lot of acronyms.02:34
psycho_oreosRaveniquE, after you did the reinstallation of decoders-support?02:34
sleepeeso i can use fapman to do an ota update?02:36
psycho_oreosRaveniquE, something is broken/screwed up somewhere :) the easiest way would be to resetup, the alternative (and potentially harder) way is to try and trace down the actual problem. I have lots of potential pointers but no actual direct way of finding out the exact errors02:36
RaveniquEthings start to change, the one lasts 2.30 was able to play, the one lasts 1.15 cannot, my movie didn't give any warning but didn't play either, gone back to menu02:36
RaveniquEwill dig, wait02:36
psycho_oreossleepee, not quite but something similar in a way. Let me give you what happened in my case. I flashed my device to pr1.3 without using OTA and when it came to installing a fair few packages via fapman, the total installation required downloading something like 200+ files which was far more than the packages I have selected to install02:37
RaveniquEI saw green screen on 2.30 one, but paused it quickly to see if others are OK too, now rechecking the 2.30 one and can't play. -.-02:38
psycho_oreosRaveniquE, that reminds me, I have a screencap recording I did on my n900 which was meant to be 0.50 but it only played a for a few seconds (skipping like about 100,000 frames) before reaching to the end02:38
RaveniquEit gave codec not supported error, again.02:38
psycho_oreosactually that 100,000 frames was a bit of exaggeration, but it was maybe around the 5,000 frames or so mark02:39
sleepeewell that's not a very good package manager then...02:40
RaveniquEfapman rocks, IMO.02:40
RaveniquErebooted, will recheck02:41
psycho_oreossleepee, its alot faster than HAM to say the least :)02:41
sleepeewell that's true.. ham is pretty frickin slow..02:41
*** newbie007 has quit IRC02:42
psycho_oreosHAM is even more slower when you enable red pill mode and checked a few boxes such as showing all packages and magic system packages02:42
RaveniquEnah. I saw green screen at the beginning of the video (2.30) then screen gone black02:42
RaveniquEwaited a few seconds, no sound, no screen, and I'm at  menu again.02:43
sleepeeyea, and having more than 2 or 3 repos makes it crawl...02:43
psycho_oreosfapman doesn't do that at all, with the equivalent amount of repos I have in both HAM and fapman, fapman is at least 3x faster02:44
*** lxp has joined #maemo02:44
RaveniquEI don't want to reflash just because of vid's !02:45
sleepeei think im going to see if i can install this fapman first02:46
RaveniquEit was the first time that I wanted to watch something though02:46
*** lxp1 has quit IRC02:47
psycho_oreoswell the alternative way is to try and trace down the source of the issue, it could be a failed package, something that may have been shown in syslog (which needs to be installed separately) or running media-player via console and seeing if there's any useful outputted messages for example02:49
RaveniquEwell, I'm all ears.02:49
*** Sc0rpius has quit IRC02:50
RaveniquEhow to check packages?02:50
sleepeedammit.. i can't install faster application manager..  i think i need to update maemo first.. grr02:54
RaveniquEI must quit now, thanks psycho for your try =)02:56

Jadekde is pretty fun15:40
DocScrutinizerkde4 is a PITA15:40
Jadewe could switch from hildon to kde entirely15:40
DocScrutinizerKDE has no dialer15:41
DocScrutinizerwell, you can run gnome apps under KDE, but I doubt there's a hildon compatibility layer15:43
DocScrutinizerand last 3 or so days resulted in another bottom line of "according to our research a community driven compatible dialer is almost impossible to implement"15:44
Jaffaleafpad: Scratchbox is a low-level, Linux-only tool you can use for application or platform development in a number of technologies. Qt SDK runs on multiple platforms and allows you to build Qt applications for Maemo15:45
lcukDocScrutinizer, for maemo you mean.  I was under the impression its entirely possible when connected via ofono on MeeGo15:46
lcuk(infact, the dialer is totally open source over there)15:46
DocScrutinizerlcuk: ack15:46
DocScrutinizernevertheless i'm sure it is by no metrics "compatible" as in "feature complete"15:47
lcukwell I guess at some point it has to be.15:47
*** drj_cro has left #maemo15:47
lcukespecially since as one of the reference apps - it should adhere to the reference specs15:47
DocScrutinizerwhich friggin reference specs? are they talking about interaction between thermal management, dialer, and 911-call emergency mode - just to name one example15:48

leafpadJaffa: when apps need to be ported, or a general linux source needs to be compiled, scratchbox will be needed for it? Or can it be done in the qt sdk?15:49
lcukDocScrutinizer, why don't you ask?
lcukhave you tested it to see how it would handle those things15:49
Jaffaleafpad: Depends on the source15:49
DocScrutinizerbecause I don't really care about meego anymore, until either they become more community-friendly or get muuuuuch better documentation about design rationale15:50
DocScrutinizerlcuk: and NO, I WON'T test overheating my N900 and then call 911 to see if it works15:51

*** SmilyOrg has joined #maemo16:12
Jaffaalterego: Intel are committed to shifting chips. Android, Windows and MeeGo all further that aim. Hell, so does Mac OS X and - I'm sure they'd love to get it - iOS16:13
DocScrutinizerUnless there's a change in Nokia's leadership (or at least Nokia's leadership's mind), the MeeGo device from Nokia will be stillborn.
JaffaDon't trust what you read on the Internet ;-)16:14
alteregoIt will with that attitude :P16:14
JaffaIt carefully says "the MeeGo device from *Nokia*".16:14
divanJade, anyway the interface is just the same and I've found the answer already.16:15
JaffaSomeone else (although who, I've no idea) could make MeeGo a core part of their mobile strategy (Samsung or HP being the best options, but both are better served currently by more finished OSes) and release a MeeGo device which *wasn't* stillborn.16:15

DocScrutinizer(securityfw) on maemo Nokia used blobs to ensure nobody is able to change their UX, on meego you bet they'll do the same by using securityfw, so either you use their oh-so-open dialer-ui or you switch to unsecured mode and neither any dialer nor mediaplayer with hw accel nor anything else will work, but you are free to replace that with your own implementations then that run in unsecure mode of OS17:12

CorsacI agree that drms might be a large part of the intended use cases for distributor, but it's not (at all) the whole point17:20
DocScrutinizerloading e.g gdb, or any arbitrary original app will taint the trusted environment, which makes it mandatory to purge and clear all trusted processes and their memory17:21
GAN900Corsac, that's the slippery slope he's worried about, I think.17:22
GAN900How much do we trust people shipping MeeGo?17:23
DocScrutinizerergo: compile your own kernel -> no dialer, no mediaplayer (ND,NM). Load any game you developed that needs access to /sys -> ND,NM.  Try to tweak any single bit in one of the "trusted" apps -> ND,NM17:23

javispedrothe webos one, which was an afterthough (original versions of the platform ran everything as root), allows you to disable it with a single command, and everything is back to being run as root again (what they call "dev mode")17:26
javispedroof course it is clear they didn't had "drm" In mind when designing that17:27
Corsacyes but again that's not a problem with the securityfw itself but rather with the people selling you the device17:28
Corsacwhich is a different matter17:29
javispedroer... obviously. but the lack of one usually means the people selling you the device can't use it ;)17:29
Corsachaving a security subsystem which you can trust *is* a good thing, wether you lack it or not17:29

DocScrutinizerjavispedro: that's not what they are going to implement on meego securityfw. Also it's useless cruft, as any rogue app can do same you can do17:30
Corsacok so clearly don't read anything17:31
DocScrutinizerso that's the "is implemented crappy so it doesn't serve the purpose" case17:31
javispedroDocScrutinizer: na, you do that trick of running apps in carefully crafted chroots with a newly created user17:31
kpomanthe mess is here:
javispedroDocScrutinizer: and the meego crap is afaik, both things: "user oriented security" and "content provider security"17:32
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: so how is THAT related to implementing signatures into bootloader? A thing they evidently needed for securityfw17:32
javispedroDocScrutinizer: well I was trying to say that the webos one is a good example of a good one. Because it protects you (_if_ you want to be protected), and doesn't require signature crap nor bootloader changes, etc.17:33
DocScrutinizercontent provider security is all I talk about here. I'm not interested in meego securityfw's attempts to mimik selinux17:34

DocScrutinizerit is17:36
keriolet's just... use it17:36

kerioi know, so let's just use selinux17:37
DocScrutinizermeego-nokia won't give you a choice - their dialer and mediaplayer WILL be tagged "secure" and WILL refuse to run on a tainted system17:38

keriojavispedro: "ok, enabling the hw encryption crap - NOP NOP NOP NOP NOP NOP NOP - alright, we're safe and sound!"17:40
DocScrutinizerso replace "nokia-dialer" by <whatever arbitraray app you got from somewhere and really don't want to miss>17:40
javispedrokerio: so when it requests to sign something and the hw refuses because "boot was not clean", what do you do?17:40
keriowhy would it?17:40
kerioand why can't you just change that?17:41
javispedrobecause boot was not clean. kernel signature didn't match.17:41
javispedrohave you used intel txt? (virtually same thing)17:41
DocScrutinizerkerio: that's why you need a signed kernel17:41
*** GNUtoo|laptop has joined #maemo17:41
DocScrutinizerand the mechanism to validate the signature is out of your reach to mess with it17:41
kerioyou guys are still not considering the fact that it's just a fancy check of some sorts17:41
keriodon't break the validation, break the code17:41
javispedroso what, go back to pirating?17:42
DocScrutinizerthe code is outside your reach17:42
keriojavispedro: what's the alternative? not running arbitrary code?17:42
keriothen yeah17:43
javispedrono, we're talking about running nokia code -- and while you can surely break it, doing so would be a "makes headlines around the world" kind of event.17:43
DocScrutinizerI.E ROM bbotloader verifies bootloader's signature, bootloader verifies kernel's signature - it's a chain of trust and you can't break its root which is in OMAP bootROM17:44
keriooh, so it's not possible to run a different kernel17:44
DocScrutinizerthat's the point17:44
kerioso meego will fail17:45
DocScrutinizerthat's my point17:45
LjLwait, am i getting this correctly then that "free" MeeGo would refuse to make phone calls unless you're using a signed kernel...? (last time i asked, they did tell me that "some DRM features" would only be enabled on trusted platforms, but this...)17:45
*** achipa has quit IRC17:45

*** achipa has joined #maemo17:46
*** achipa has joined #maemo17:46
LjLah so potentially it could be like that, but it depends on which actual applications would decide to be "secure"...? are there any yet?17:46
javispedrowho knows? meego has no securityfw as of yet, this is all part of the more secretish harmattan17:47
keriowell if you can't run a different kernel it'll suck anyway17:47
kerioeven if the rest is open17:47
DocScrutinizerwith emphasis on "so far" - and of course: [2011-02-19 16:39:13] <DocScrutinizer> well, modulo the fact there will never be such a thing like a nokia-dialer as things are now17:47
DocScrutinizer[2011-02-19 16:40:16] <DocScrutinizer> so replace "nokia-dialer" by <whatever arbitraray app you got from somewhere and really don't want to miss>17:47
DocScrutinizerkerio: *for now* they want to allow homebrew kernels, but they are tainted and won't run any app labeled "secure". It's up to the app devels to tag their app like this17:49
kerioDocScrutinizer: yeah, but what makes an app "secure"?17:50
DocScrutinizerand of course it needs less that a snip with fingers for Nokia to lock down the bootloader to completely disallow arbitrary kernels17:50
DocScrutinizerkerio: signature17:50
kerioyeah right17:50
kerioDocScrutinizer: yeah but isn't a program just a bunch of assembly?17:50
DocScrutinizerkerio: signature with a key that only the device manufacturer owns17:51
jaskaugh,a phone like that would be the equivalent of a featurephone?17:51
kerioyeah but i don't get what's the problem in just changing the code17:51
javispedrokerio: be creative, like sony ;). encrypt the program.17:51
psycho_oreoshah sony is hardly creative17:52
keriooh, i see17:52
DocScrutinizerkerio: a signature is a md5sum over whole the program text, that's crypted by the private key, and in system you got the public key to decrypt it and check if it's correct17:54
DocScrutinizer(largely simplified picture...)17:54
keriooh so the program itself is *not* crypted17:54
keriojust change it to not require the signature17:54
javispedrothat's why I said so just crypt it.17:55
DocScrutinizerthat's a feature of the kernel, not of the program. But yeah, possibly you could RE and "unsecure" simple apps17:56
kerioi doubt a mobile system can support fully encrypted binaries17:56
